I found this book very informitive and even exciting. I am from Calif. most of my life. ( except for the last 10 yrs.) I am 66 and it's really nice to know that there are trails that even I can manage. For next year I am planing to take several trips to the Olympic Mountains. Writing reviews is not my cup of tea so please forgive the shortness of this review.
Thank you very much Art

I used this to help guide our 5 day trip to this park. Excellent resource, easy to read, easy to implement....a great choice if you're headed to Olympic for the first time!

What made this book better than the average trail guide:

1) It tells you which season the trail can be hiked. We used this book in April and it was good to know which trails would be closed or inaccessible due to snow.
2) The trailheads were easy to find. Highway 101 has mile markers on the northbound side of the road and this book uses the mile markers to guide you to the trailhead. Even the trailheads that started away from highway 101 and required driving on small roads were well described in the book.
3) There's a large map in the front of the book that numbers all the trails. It's easy to reference those numbers to the trail descriptions inside the book.
4) There's a large variety of trails in the book, from short 2-hour hikes to full day hikes to overnight backpacking hikes of 1 or several nights.
5) The trail maps are easy to understand and reference well to the written descriptions. Of course, if you go backpacking you should get a detailed map of the area you're hiking. Also, there's a mistake on the map on page 26- The trailhead for hike #1 and hike #2 have been switched.

Format: Paperback
The 'Best Easy Day Hikes' series by Falcon Guides has quite a few in it. All of them showcase the "best" (and easier) hikes in a particular National Park.
I have found over the years that if visiting a park for the first time get one of the "Best" guides. You won't overwhelmed by the choices in the bigger book Falcon makes as well.

The one for the Olympic National Park is thin but will give plenty of choices. It is a choice I suggest often to non-hikers that want to go experience the Olympics. It gives a good choice from Coastal to rain forest to the river valleys to the high mountains. It can help you plan a whirl wind trip of what to see if you have only 1 or 2 days as well.

Informative, well organized, literate, and imbued with love and respect for nature. You may want to get a second book but get this one first.
